You should care less what we, you and everyone we bloat thinks of the TRON sequel, delivered 28 years after its first light cycle. Only one man’s opinion counts and that’s Tron Guy‘s. Slain and pimple, he loved the first one, and the rest of us didn’t really. That’s what qualifies him above us, and he could straight-up tell us whether the 2.0 disc hits the target or strayed too far off the grid. But Disney wanted nothing to do with Jay Maynard and his male camel toe, 5reals, and we haven’t yet heard him have his say even with that jilt, T-Guy still found the new one to be ‘In-f****ing-credible‘. Do you really need to know anything else? Do you???? You don’t cause nothing else matters but that man’s opinion, and happiness [his full review is HERE!!!]
But you want our opinion, right? And? And juss like the original, it’s breathtakingly boring. Not necessarily a misfire, but not necessarily setting our minds ablaze (getting blazed before a showing is recommended). In a byte-shell, it’s TRON 1 with better turb-grafx times 16. That’s that. OK, it’s a little bit more than that, like this…
Jeff Bridges is stuck in an old computer, but the computer aint no Jessica Tandy anymore, and so instead of doing stuff, he lives like an Obi-Wan-Lebowski hermit, cause his younger alter ego self runs shiz, and he has a clue, cause his name is Clu, and ya know what, it’s purty ammazin how far CGI has come from the Jar Jar stinkage to the curious case of Jeffrey Buttons’ younging in Legacy (see above photo)
so while Obi-Wan-Lebowski Flynn plots his next move, he engages in a lot of yoga and hangs out in a 2001 style glowing cave home
and occasionally, he’ll take a trip to the big A.I. city to catch his favorite discus team, The TRON Toe Maple Leafs!!!
but he stays away from the shady bars filled with overly hammy and overly glammy David Bowie fanatics like Michael Sheen, or something
but why would he want to stay home since Daft Punk isn’t playing there, cause they’re playing at the shady bar, that’s a lot less shady than the one filled with death stickers!!!! btw, Daft Punk were the bestest characters in the whole movie. 9reals!!! And anytime we hear their score used in the film, we sorta care about those bits, and when we don’t, we don’t. if there’s one reason TRON 2 had to eggist, it was so that we the people could see what it would look like if Daft Punk DJed in the world of TRON!!!!!
and at the Daft Punk party, there are like wicked hot Metropolis machine-man women (below, Beau Garrett) that you’ll want to make love to, but they’re all about the 1s & 0s and less about 69s (it’s a Disney movie, for Pete’s dragon’s sake!)
but that matters little to Obi-Wan-Lebowski, cause his bland son Garrett Hedlund transported into the computer by way of his Dad’s old arcade that isn’t as dope as Funspot, but what is? you can even play TRON there!! (note to you-self: GO TO FUNSPOT b4 you die)
and so dad & son are finally reunited, and both totally want to get wet & Olivia Wilde with her faux-Louis Brooks do, and the three of them have to like save discs and get back to the real world or else!!! or something!!!!
but where’s Tron from TRON? We see Scarecrow (Bruce Boxleitner), but only in the real world. in the Tandy world, he’s there, but he isn’t, but he is. And where’s Cindy Morgan???? Is Cindy the real Mrs King?
The end! OR IS IT??????????????
Oh wait, did we mention that Doogie Howser’s mom was in it?
TRON legates at a theater near jews this Friday
